Art tutorials on making banners with photoshople


Recommended Posts

[size=1][color=royalblue]Here's the thing: You can't really be taught how to make a banner. The majority of Photoshop tutorials focus on various techniques and functions rather than teaching you to, persay, make a Winamp skin or whatever.

Really, the only way to learn how to make a banner (for the OB or anywhere else) is by looking at what others are doing, having resources, and developing your own style. It takes a while to get used to Photoshop and manevour around it with ease. In fact, many people that use Photoshop non-professionally will tell you that they don't know what everything does.

But back on topic. If you look at a (good) banner and wonder just how they were able to make it, here are a couple of answers: Brushes, textures, filters, and even the simpliest of hue and saturation. After discovering brush sites, I pretty much only use those on my graphics because of how nifty they are. Textures are nice to use because you can be lazy and put those in for a background or an overlay. And filters? You experiment.

I'm sorry for not really giving you any help. However, I can steer you in the direction of [url=http://absolutecross.com/tutorials/]Absolute Cross[/url], [url=http://www.planetphotoshop.com/tutorials.html]Planet Photoshop[/url], [url=http://hybrid-genesis.net/indexxx1.html]Hybrid Genesis[/url], and, my personal favorite, [url=http://magicbox.ti-fi.com/]The Magic Box[/url]. They are my random resource sites for brushes, textures, and effect tutorials.
